If you hurry, you might be able to snag a Nintendo Switch for just $240.

Forget Black Friday and Cyber Monday . Some of the best deals of the year can be found right now at Google Express. When you apply promo code WISH20 at checkout, you'll save 20 percent -- which leads to all-time low prices on some high-profile products.

Amazingly, that code works even with items that are already on sale. And the discount cap is a hefty $500.

Now for the bad news: Some of the items prominently mentioned on Google's promo page are already sold out. Or, more accurately, the promo code was already used the maximum number of times. I got that message when I tried to check out with the Nintendo Switch (below). Then, curiously, the code worked a few minutes later. Your mileage may vary.

My top picks from the sale:

Apple AirPods: $115.98

Apple MacBook Air 13.3-inch (Core i5, 8GB, 128GB): $683.20

Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2 Upright Vacuum: $239.20

Microsoft Surface Pro 6 12.3-inch (Core i5, 8GB, 128GB): $719.20

Nintendo Switch 32GB Blue/Red: $239.99

Xbox One X 1TB NBA 2K19 Bundle with Red Dead Redemption 2: $368

Hope you're able to snag something you like before it's sold out! If not, well, stay tuned -- there are sure to be lots more sales in the weeks to come.
